Yum Cha 飲茶(ヤムチャ)
Posted by: victor
Have you ever heard about Yum Cha, literally tea drinking?
It is one of the most popular activities for Japanese travelers visiting Hong Kong.
Yum Cha is not only tasting tea, but also DimSum, which is a kind of Cantonese cuisine in a very small portion in sizes, usually one piece foe an individual. If you have not tried DimSum in Hong Kong, please don't tell others that you have been to the place ( just kidding XD)
So, let me introduce the top five of DimSums!
1. Shrimp dumplings
They are also called the "King of all DimSums"
The translucent skins of the dumpling make it artistic
The shrimps are very fresh and delicious
2.Shaomai/Shumai (steamed meat dumpling)
I think it is very well-known in Japan.
It can be found in China Town and even in supermarkets.
The traditional one in Hong Kong is made by yellow skins with shrimp and meat inside.
Sometimes shrimp eggs are put on the top as a decoration.
3. Steamed meatball
The meatball is made of beef, and usually has a tofu skin layer in the bottom, garnished with some vegetables like scallions. It is served with the standardized non-Chinese worcestershire sauce worldwide.
They are made by wrapping an assortment of ingredients in a pastry and then steaming or frying the resulting roll. They are also common in Japan, but the one is Cantonese cuisine is a bit different than the one in Japan.
5. DimSum in Disneyland Hong Kong
Killing the Little Green Man in Toy Story!
They are in the shape of the characters in Disney's animations
I tried them by myself. They were really funny!!
